The Mercedes- Benz W126 is the company’s internal designation for its second generation S-Class, the top of the range saloon model that has always been the epitome of performance, comfort and setting. The S-Class has always brought new levels of technology and product refinement to the industry as a whole. The 12 year production run for this model from 1979 until 1991 resulted in an impressive 818,063 saloons being built, making it the most successful production of the S-Class.
Originally registered on 3rd February 1988, this fantastic 500SE has recently benefitted from a 440 hour restoration by Midlands firm, Modern Classics. The comprehensive works are fully photographically detailed in a file that contains over 390 pictures of the works undertaken. The result is the stunning car seen here. From the striking blue metallic paintwork to the grey interior, this Mercedes is presented extremely well. The car fired into life when requested and runs with a reassuring V8 engine note. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until October 2021, this Mercedes would look good in any collection and could be enjoyed by any new owner.
